Tommy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tommy
Age: Over 50 years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Tortoise
Home: Birmingham, England
   This is my Grandad's tortoise - he is actually a she, which we found out not so long ago. The tortoise has always been known as Tommy and that could never change, as that is what is she will answer to. She is over 50 years old, we're not sure exactly how old she is because my Grandad found her. She goes into hibernation every year, and when it's time to come out again she bangs her shell on the box to let you know she's ready to come out. She is forever chasing my Nan up the garden, but these days she can run faster than my Nan!
